Ruling party condemns attempts to politicize suspension

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has condemned what it called attempts by certain individuals and groups to politicize the suspension of the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Sanusi Lamido.

President Goodluck Jonathan had on Thursday suspended Mr. Sanusi from office over alleged financial recklessness and official misconduct.

However, many Nigerians have criticized the president’s action, attributing it to Mr. Sanusi’s allegation that the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, failed to remit $20 billion oil money to government account.

He had earlier written Mr. Jonathan alleging that the corporation did not remit $49.8 billion.

In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, on Sunday, the PDP said the issues leading to Mr. Sanusi’s suspension strictly bordered on the management of the nation’s economy and urged Nigerians to disregard those attempting to politicize or introduce sentiments into the matter.

The ruling party said it had “implicit confidence in President Goodluck Jonathan and his efforts to ensure the stability and growth of the economy” adding that the decision was in the best interest of the nation.”

It dismissed insinuations that the suspension was aimed at silencing a whistle blower and promoting corruption.

The PDP said after thorough analysis of the issues surrounding the suspension, “it was clear that the decision was in tandem with the commitment of the Federal Government to safeguard the CBN and the entire financial sector from abuses.”

It stated that the findings of the Financial Reporting Council revealed series of administrative recklessness in the CBN which are “very weighty and cannot be swept under the carpet of politics and sentiments.”

Debunking suggestions that the suspension would negatively affect the economy, the PDP observed that instead, it had restored confidence in the financial sector and in Government’s ability to check abuses harmful to the system.

The PDP urged Nigerians not to be swayed by those seeking to play politics with the matter and that that Mr. Sanusi should have nothing to fear if he had no skeleton in his cupboard.

    PDP because your time is almost up that is why you are breaking the rule of law anyhow. If the suspension of SLS was right is the missing $20billion right ?

  • Funso Alade

    Fine, but is the non accountability on the N20 Billion also right?

    SANUSI MUST DIE BY HANGING …… NO PROSECUTION AND FURTHER WASTE OF PUBLIC FUNDS NEEDED.

    What are they talking about?

    Sanusi wasted public funds by incurring over N100Billion legal expenses in just one accounting year and they are still talking about prosecuting him and incurring additional legal expenses that will still be settled with tax payers money.

    In addition, before they waste more tax payers money, they should consider this from THISDAY NEWSPAPER (Sanusi: A Reformer Who Needs To Render Account) of Saturday February 22, 2013 stating inter alia as follows:

    “if an organ of government without presence in all states of the federation could spend about N1.6 billion on books and newspapers, it means the CBN was spending close to N4.4million per day on books and periodicals.”

    “If Nigeria’s CBN governor could spend over N1.2billion to maintain private guards and buy lunch for policemen in one year, one would wonder how much is needed to maintain the entire armed forces of The Gambia.”

    So I ask …… why do they want to waste more tax payers money prosecuting Sanusi? It does not make sense.

    The facts of Sanusi’s case are very clear. All that FG owes Nigerians is to tell us the day Sanusi will be hanged publicly at Eagle Square … period.

    Sanusi must die by hanging for using CBN resources to fund Boko Haram, and APC, and his numerous mistresses.

    Nigerians now know where Boko Haram are getting the funds that they are using to buy brand new Toyota Hilux Vans and sophisticated weapons that have cost the lives of over 20million Nigerians in the last two years along with the destruction of over N950Trillion worth of properties.

    Nigerians now also know the person that funded Boko Haram’s attempt to kill the widely respected Emir of Kano, the Shehu of Borno and others including the brutal killing of General Shuwa.

    I am convinced that a person involved in funding terrorism that have cost the lives of over 20million Nigerians in the last two years must die by hanging … period.

    I am also convinced that a person who goes about sleeping with other men’s wives must die by hanging or beheaded …… @Premium Times has since provided Nigerians with evidence that Sanusi has a strong habit of sleeping with other men’s wives

    P/S:

    Sanusi is responsible for the massive decline of the Naira in the forex market. That is economic sabotage ……… the scale of the sabotage is punishable with nothing less than death by hanging.

    I am convinced that a person involved in funding terrorism that have cost the lives of over 20million Nigerians in the last two years must die by hanging … period.

    I am also convinced that a person who goes about sleeping with other men’s wives must die by hanging OR beheaded …… @Premium Times has since provided Nigerians with evidence that Sanusi has a strong habit of sleeping with other men’s wives.

      You are a non entity that’s why you spend you days making useless comments that make no sense and your hatred for the Hausa-Fulani & Yoruba will soon start to burn you from inside.

    Let’s hope that the courts would confirm that GEJ is right.
